Jim Thompson has a fantastic quote:

There is only one plot — things are not what they seem. 

There’s a little window that cracked open here on the internet. This window didn’t exist twenty years ago, certainly not thirty years ago, but the contractor came out, found a nice piece of wall far away from the door, made a big ol’ hole and installed it. It’s a lovely window, wide and clear and lots of beautiful faces on either side. The world smiles back and forth across it. Hello!

That’s a roundabout way to say that I’m starting a website. I’m Patty, I live in southern California, here’s a picture. (It’s only photoshopped a little bit. Guess there’s room to learn some photography, too.)
